While traveling to Michigan, I visited the peaceful and charming city of Christmas. Christmas is located northwest of Munising, about a 5-minute drive along M-28. As I was looking for a casino, I came across a banner showing me the direction to Christmas Casino or otherwise known as Kewadin Casino. This casino is the largest building in the town of Christmas.
Why this city is called Christmas dates back to 1938 when a Munising man started a roadside factory to make holiday gifts, thus came upon this name. Christmas’ zip code is 49862, and many letters have come from there since 1966 when the town received it’s first Post Office. From that point forward many people have shown up in the month of December to mail their Christmas cards and presents so they would be postmarked coming from Christmas.
Christmas is also near the Bay Furnace campgrounds on Lake Superior in the Hiawatha National Forest. From 1869 to 1877, the campground was the site of Onota, an iron smelting town with a population of 517. The town was destroyed by fire in 1877 and only the iron kiln ruins remain. While in operation, Bay Furnace produced 20 tons of pig iron a day. Ships came to the 1200 foot dock bringing supplies and taking out pig iron. Bay Furnace is on the National Register of Historic Places. While driving through Christmas you won’t miss the 35-foot tall Santa Claus.
For the fun fact, it’s not only Michigan having a city of Christmas, but there are various other states having cities named after Christmas, Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, Utah, Maine, Oregon, and Tennessee also have Christmas towns and valleys.
